A program in Oregon giving rebates for buying or leasing electric vehicles has become a victim of its success.
The state has temporarily suspended rebates for a year starting in May because too many people are applying, and the program is running out of money, according to a report by The Oregonian/OregonLive.
Over 60,600 EVs are registered in the state.
In over five years, the Clean Vehicle Rebate Program has disbursed more than $71 million to help people buy or lease roughly 25,000 of those vehicles.
